Erica rolled the car today, she's ok but the car isn't so good
A friend of mine called me from the track...she lost it and rolled at about the 1000' mark...the owner was at the starting line and said "that's NOT what I am looking for"...the rear end swung to the right, she got out of it, corrected, and then it swung to the left and rolled...
Jeggy finally got one pass to completion...ran a 7.75....Greg Anderson had a 6.69 on one pass...V. Gaines had to be pushed back off the line 3 times in a row...Emily Lewis was there hangin' with Dave Connelly's GF...
